3 Things You Might Not Know About Heart Attacks

We all know that heart attacks are dangerous and that heart attacks can be deadly, but did you know that:

  • It is possible to heave a heart attack without severe pain.
  • The failure to diagnose heart attacks account for about 30% of medical malpractice payout. 
  • 2-5% of people who have heart attacks and who go to emergency rooms are inappropriately turned away from emergency rooms.

What does this mean for you?

It means that you, and your loved ones, should know common symptoms of heart attacks and fight for thorough testing if you believe that you might be suffering from a heart attack.  If you are aggressive in your own care then may save you from an early death or disability due to the failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of a heart attack.
